Saw this in the NFL forum so thought I'd put it here. If each team were to have one player make that extra step whether it is from bench to starter, starter to all star, or even all star to superstar, who would it be? Do every team, do a division, do your team, it doesn't really matter. Just thought this would be semi-fun before the year starts.

Southwest
Dallas: Roddy Beaubois
Houston: Jordan Hill
Memphis: Sam Young
New Orleans: Eric Gordon
San Antonio: Tiago Splitter

Northwest
Denver: Ty Lawson
Portland: Nicolas Batum
Oklahoma City: James Harden (star)
Utah: Derrick Favors
Minnesota: Wesley Johnson

Pacific
Phoenix: Marcin Gortat
LA Lakers: Devin Ebanks
LA Clippers: DeAndre Jordan
Golden State: Stephen Curry
Sacramento: Tyreke Evans




Atlantic
Boston: Rajon Rondo
New Jersey: Marshon Brooks (he might put himself into ROY race)
New York: Landry Fields
Toronto: Ed Davis
Philadelphia: Evan Turner

Central
Chicago: Omer Asik
Indiana: Paul George
Cleveland: Christian Eyenga
Detroit: Greg Monroe
Milwaukee: Larry Sanders

Not trying to put any pressure on him, but the world depends on Paul George breaking out.

Knicks - Shumpert - I think he has the confidence right now to start but since we are lacking in the PG role I dont think they will test him at the starting 2G until Baron is rolling.

I'll play along.

Southwest
Dallas: Roddy Beaubois - Will get a lot of minutes behind a resting Jason Kidd
Houston: Chandler Parsons - Will be this year's Landry Fields
Memphis: OJ Mayo - Earns his starting job back and puts up 18-20 PPG
New Orleans: Eric Gordon - Should average 25-30 PPG and become an All Star
San Antonio: Dejuan Blair - Will average a double double

Northwest
Denver: Kenneth Faried - Starter by default and will be a rebounding machine
Portland: Greg Oden - As I say every year, if he is healthy he will be MIP
Oklahoma City: James Harden - 6th Man of the Year
Utah: CJ Miles - Dont be surprised if he is the Jazz 2nd leading scorer
Minnesota: Anthony Randolph - Adelman & Rubio will make him better

Pacific
Phoenix: Shannon Brown - Is poised for a big season at SG in their system
LA Lakers: Andrew Bynum - This is the year he finally becomes an All Star
LA Clippers: DeAndre Jordan - Does CP3 bring lobs? Yes
Golden State: Stephen Curry - Will finally become viewed as a Top 5 PG
Sacramento: DeMarcus Cousins - In the midst of JimmerMania, Boogie will be the real star




Atlantic
Boston: Brandon Bass - Hes a vet but he's been underrated his whole career and Boston is a big stage
New Jersey: Damion James - Will be a big factor on offense & defense at SF
New York: Jerome Jordan - Knicks backup C will be this years Omar Asik
Toronto: Jerryd Bayless - Keeps improving & will take Calderon's starting job
Philadelphia: Thaddeus Young - Darkhorse candidate for 6th Man of the Year

Central
Chicago: Taj Gibson - If Chicago ever benches Boozer it will be due to Taj
Indiana: Lance Stephenson - Hes talented, just needs to stay out of trouble
Cleveland: Omri Casspi - If he plays like he did as a rookie, he might be MIP
Detroit: Greg Monroe - Monroe should emerge as a cornerstone for the Pistons
Milwaukee: Brandon Jennings - Year 3. Time to take that next step as a player

Southeast
Miami: Eddy Curry - Why not? His only competition is Joel Anthony. Worked hard to get back into basketball shape for this.
Orlando: Big Baby - I thnk hes ready to be a big factor on offense this season
Charlotte: Kemba Walker - Hand him Rookie of the Year now.
Atlanta: Tracy McGrady - A 7x All NBA Player having a breakout season? Look what T-Mac's coming back from
Washington: Javale McGee - Hes going to go all out in his contract year

One of my favorite players from this past draft. Totally agree on the comparison to Landry Fields

If anyone on this awful Nets team steps up, Damion James will be that guy. Should become a good defender that attacks the basket pretty well.


People are wayyyyyy too high on Marshon Brooks.

Pacers- Paul George, Lance Stephenson, and Tyler Hansbrough all could potentially have a "breakout year". Hansbrough though is probably the most likely one to catch a lot of people's eye. The numbers he put up in preseason had a few people on ESPN.com had Tyler winning 6th man or Most Improved.

lol @ some people listing Andrew Bynum when he's already considered a top 3 Center in the league by most analysts (assuming healthy) and would be the key piece in a trade for this decades best center and future hall of famer (d12).

Yea....lets hope this guy named Andrew Bynum breaks out guyzzz

i'd love parsons to break out ala landry fields, but i doubt he gets the chance behind budinger, t-will, and morris at the 3. I think our breakout guy will be hill

Paul George is awesome.

I actually like him more than Granger because of his better shot selection and defense.

That's a scary dude for years to come.

I'm surprised to see Jordan Hill and Chandler Parsons getting love over Kyle Lowry on the Rockets, but I suppose you can argue that he sort of broke out last season. Personally, I think he's still got some breaking out to do, but I think he's capable of being in the top 5 PG discussion by the end of the season. I also think Patrick Patterson has some major potential if he can get minutes behind Scola and Dalembert. That guy is the future starting PF, without a doubt, which is why Morey has been so reluctant to trade him.
